a controversial extradition bill again to the territories the chief executive calls wednesday's demonstrations a blatant organized riot protest organizers call for another mass demonstration on sunday. plus the football women's world cup in france germany will almost certainly reach the knockout stages of the tournament after a hard fought one to win over spain. i'm sumi so much got it's good to have you with us we start with what could be another escalation of tension in the gulf region 2 oil tankers have reportedly been attacked in the gulf of oman near the strait of hormuz but a crews of both vessels have been evacuated there's a report that one of the tankers has sunk but its owner says it hasn't now the alleged. attacks come at a time when tensions between the u.s.
2:02 pm
and iran are running high. to oil tankers in the gulf of oman damaged under mysterious circumstances their crews forced to evacuate it's an incident reminiscent of the widely criticised sabotage attacks of last month. the norwegian operated front altera carrying a highly flammable petroleum product and the panama flag cuckoo cuckoo courageous carrying methanol were both allegedly targeted in iranian waters near the strategic strait of hormuz a conduit for a 5th of all global oil consumption iranian news outlets say local search and rescue teams have picked up 44 sailors from the front altera before it sank in the gulf of oman but the vessels norwegian owner says the tanker remains afloat confusion about the situation prevails and norwegian authorities have called on its ships in the region to exercise extra caution shortly after the suspected attack
2:03 pm
oil prices soared jumping as much as 4 percent highlighting how crucial the area remains to global energy supplies. let's bring in our security expert mike yes fun hine for more on this story how serious is this incident. i think it's hard to overestimate the significance of this incident as the report said this . incident happened at the mouth of the most important energy shipping lane in the words the strait of hormuz which carries about you know one 5th of world energy supplies. and every incident here everything that would choke the supply of energy the supply of oil would be a real threat to the world economy. so that's one thing to point of attack the timing of the attack we have seen rising tensions between the u.s. and iran over the last couple of weeks with the u.s.
2:04 pm
redshirting up its maximum pressure complain on iran with tightening the sanctions even further and with iran starting to indicate that it might slip out of the nuclear deal themselves so the u.s. has brought additional troops to the gulf region an aircraft carrier and b. 52 bombers so the situation is highly explosive my ts we are still waiting for a full confirmation this was indeed an attack but if it is confirmed who might have carried it out. well hard to say but a lot of fingers will point to iran was it justified or not and that's partly because reagan's have warned repeatedly in the past that if they cannot export oil through the strait of hormuz they will make sure that nobody else can and due to
2:05 pm
the maximum pressure complain of the us iranian oil exports down a lot and so there's there's reason to believe that iran might start to extract a price on u.s. sanctions but then again this is would be a very very odd moment for such an attack remember so japanese prime minister shinzo alba is in tehran right at this very moment and one of the ships is linked to japan. it would be it would be very odd to attack a japanese ship while the japanese prime minister is visiting and trying to establish direct links between tehran and washington then there's a lot of diplomatic push at the time to deescalate german foreign minister who was in tehran on monday a very high european union foreign affairs official who is going to visit the region later this week. all right correspondent fun hina thank you for sharing your

2:07 pm
and so the probability over more cases was it goes up from the d r s e into uganda he's very high. in poland isn't new to uganda the country has seen 5 al breaks of the disease since the year 2000 it has now stepped up efforts to contain the virus screening every person coming in from the eastern d r c the government is also deploying an experimental ebola vaccine for health care workers along the border we are very close. that many more people coming to support the response and this maybe more people may not be vaccinated and so right there we shall be buffeted shown again more. frontline hill to our cause other work unring buxom nation for the contacts because of past successes in combating the disease uganda is widely regarded as being at the forefront of the fight against
2:08 pm
involucre but faced with the most recent cases many ugandans feel uneasy and wish their country did more to educate citizens about the virus the government does not done enough to surprise people about it because i think the uk in origin it should have started the from the rural areas but you know when people have the symptoms they want to hide on in the mix with a great opportunity of which now spreads the visits to the white dock area of room so. of course i haven't seen any symptom movie but they seem to go i'm unsure due to sure news doing so as people are both doing good out in the horrible from it if you see these guys but i know you mean these 300 series. tomorrow the world health organization is set to decide whether it be a bowl outbreak now that it has transcended the d r c should be declared an international health emergency not some other stories making headlines around the

2:11 pm
a friend information and they share news about the protests on latest response from government officials and other groups they also share practical information such as where to get the best face how much they and. group that provides legal services ok so this is an important tool that's been disrupted by a cyber attack is there any indication that china is trying to interfere in these protests telegram has that they have received cyber attacks and the authentic read he said that these attacks mainly came from china and he also emphasized that this came at the time when there was a protest in hong kong. china has not respond to this accusation but then. attack yeah yeah it's made it more difficult for them to use telegrams so how will
2:12 pm
protesters then in hong kong be able to organize themselves going forward can they still use just messaging service. but then they are way more aware of their identity so many often they don't use their real photos they don't use their real names they do. and actually some salsas also told me that a child not to use their phone to take photos so that they would know if someone is taking photos of then they know that is probably the police who want to fight and take pictures of their faces so they'd be more careful you're saying our reporter cherry chan bringing us the story thank you terry. now poland is considering naming a military base for trump after the us president promised to deploy an additional $1000.00 troops there and those troops could be relocated from germany which donald trump is criticized for not spending enough on defense trump made the announcement while hosting polish president at the white house. things are looking
2:13 pm
up for the u.s. polish alliance trump welcomed his guest polish president on jury duty with an f. $35.00 fly over the poles want to purchase more than 30 of the u.s. made fighter jets a deal like that gets a reward over a fireplace shot trump suggested a 1000 additional troops could be relocated from germany to poland we have $52000.00 troops in germany. and germany is not living up to what they're supposed to be doing with respect to nato and poland is i have to congratulate you thank you very much poland is seeking more security from the u.s. to quell its concerns about russian activity as well as military equipment the 2 leaders signed a multi-billion dollar deal for the sale of u.s. liquefied gas to poland. for duda the international visit is also about national politics poland will hold parliamentary elections later this year shortly before the vote dude i once trump to make an appearance to take part in world war 2
2:14 pm
commemorations. on your presidential just a moment mr president we all hope that you'll visit us in poland in september when we mark the anniversary of the invasion by nazi germany. so i should ok very destructive. trump says he will consider the invitation for what would be his 2nd official visit to poland. now the 5 g. network is the new standard for mobile communications it's up to $100.00 times as fast as previous networks and it's a big moneymaker for governments which can auction off radio frequencies germany has been lagging behind but now berlin has auctioned the frequencies for its 5 g. network and made an impressive profit. launched 13 weeks ago the clock was stopped on wednesday the auction for 5 g. frequencies is over the corporations telecom telefonica
2:15 pm
vodafone net a subsidiary of once united internet paid a total of 6600000000 euros your forum is the other steve i'm very pleased that the 4 companies that have acquired the frequencies and now able to quickly drive the 5 g. network expansion competition kernan the new mobile radio standard 5 g. will be able to transmit data around a 100 times faster than its predecessor 40 and it'll do it almost instantaneously decisive for example for autonomous driving or industry digitalized large corporations like b.s.f. even want to set up their own networks using fi independent of the mobile network operators for example trucks were used to drive autonomously with the billions from the auction the german state wants to expand high speed internet into rural areas and promote the digitalisation of schools for private use in germany 5 g.
2:16 pm
will probably be available in 2021 at the earliest and he won't be nationwide until some time after that. aaron telt in front of you business is looking into the story for us aaron is this a done deal are we going to see 5 g. devices pretty soon no probably not i mean don't really expect them to be hitting your marketplace tomorrow basically we're talking about here is these companies bought the rights to build the network and they're saying they could get it done by 2021 but you have to realize germany has a horrible track record when it comes to internet connectivity and we were just talking about this in the break i mean if you look at our cell phone networks it's actually a country like albania has a punch better high speed internet network than we do here in germany and that's really a huge problem for german businesses you have to realize a lot of companies are looking to 5 g. transfer rates to enable the technology if you. and we're talking here just like we saw in the report self driving cars we're also talking about these autonomy's factories that a lot of companies are betting on to secure their supply chain moving forward and
2:17 pm
as long as they don't have that network they're not going to be developing those technologies and that's a huge problem for berlin so of course a lot of people might be asking is what world us china us well way play in all of this because we know that the u.s. wants germany to block well way from its 5 g. network well it definitely does it's a major stumbling stone right now in the relations between the 2 countries because as i was just talking about there germany has a problem when it comes to building these type of networks it's a huge problem the last 2030 years hallway is the market leader when it comes to this type of technology it's also the cheapest provider that's out there so really if germany wants to build a 5 g. network quickly and efficiently it needs while these technology however the trump administration argues there's a lot of securities concerns out there now the german government has echoed some of those concerns heikal mouse said recently they admitted to the fact that there were some security concerns around huawei however germany really can't afford to block them out of the development of 5 g. at the moment which is part of the reason we're seen such a contentious issue develop between washington and berlin at the moment all right
2:18 pm
erin chilton from business thank you for keeping us up to date thank you you're watching news still to come on the show we'll look back at the victory of that all but ensured germany will go through to the next stage of the women's world cup. but 1st the result of the 1st round of voting in the race to become the next british prime minister has just been announced as expected the former foreign minister boris johnson got the most votes of all the candidates he goes through to the next round with 6 others including michael gove and jeremy hunt johnson has been the favorite from the start the colorful character and brags that hardliner has vowed to leave the u.k. out of the european union. oh the front runner has come to the fore boris johnson has promised to see through pranks it by the end of october which after the cost at least that was his pledge to tory voters. if i get in will come out and deal my
2:19 pm
deal. with that when you come back to the good. burger this is same promise he's made to right wing members of the conservative party who joined him to kick start the campaign he gave me his words to my face that if he became prime minister we would leave only 31st of october dream that pleases me advocates of a new deal breaks it may have to dream on indeed chance boris johnson moved away from his previous comments on the matter no longer supporting such a scenario. it's only if we have the guts and the courage to get ready for it that we will carry any conviction in brussels and get the deal we need because they don't want no deal anymore the idea of a policy closer to that of to reason may and one that confuse journalists in attendance you're telling some supporters you'll do everything to avoid leaving the e.u. without a deal and others that you gladly would do that can the country trust you boris
2:20 pm
johnson was not prepared to answer all. right last year. made history when she won gold in the jujitsu world championships and became a figure of national pride at home in the philippines now she is using her status to tackle the child sex tourism that affects the country with her campaign to empower abuse survivors on the mat. one thing filipino martial arts star mega church or north is how to fight and how to win but no she's wrestling with the scourge afflicting her country using jujitsu to help survivors of child abuse triumph over their trauma. before this i always ran away from my problems before this i always cried about it. the philippines has been branded a hub of child sexual exploitation that's increasingly happening online might mean
2:21 pm
this week charity 10 days omes highlighted the scale of the problem using sweety a computer generated girl who was targeted by 20000 paedophiles in just a few weeks and thousands of other children are often forced to perform sexual acts from nice again on my blog even it's why jujitsu world champion a chore decided to act as well it looks like you're setting up the fight to protect initiative to help victims of child abuse to regain their confidence through self defense. was 1st some of the kids that i've gotten to know some of them you would view themselves as nothing. they saw themselves as worthless you know because of what they experienced. physical therapy like this has its critics who warn that it could be retried ties in for victims but for 2 and they go to the empowering effect
2:22 pm
a role to play. for somebody that has gone through that kind of trauma specifically it makes you more comfortable off the right kind of you know that that's not. that's not abusive point that that you know part of sport mean aware of your own body also once i learned to it help me to realize that it's not your fault it's just a challenge for you and a challenge that has readily embraced teaching her country's most vulnerable the arts of self defense and a feeling of self-worth that the women's world cup saw some heavy weight gains on wednesday public fully at least from data abuse forces whether it's to take us through this published in germany took on spain a game a lot of people were looking at and germany did prevail but it wasn't smooth sailing no it was far from smooth sailing actually and germany seem to have struggled a little bit so far despite the fact that they actually did beat spain in this
2:23 pm
match but spain did dominate possession through it but germany has this really solid defense and then obviously they know how to score goals but before we actually talk a little bit more i think what we need to do is take a look at the report. germany with the injured star midfielder jennifer were under pressure again spain who created more chances early on but shortly before the break germany apply their own pressure of the cross alexander patera popped out in sorrow daybreak's was there to pick up the pieces giving germany a one goal lead. after the restart germany kept up the momentum pop again with the header but this time the keeper kept hold. despite spain having the lion's share of the ball they couldn't crack the germany defense a late appeal for a pity was turned down. we are really happy to have picked up this very important 3 points it took a lot of energy and we had a lot of luck in the opening few minutes with the win germany now top the group
2:24 pm
with 6 points and are all but through. that's a great result for them indeed not 14 games they are unbeaten this is germany of course and they have yet to lose against spain after 5 meetings so solid squad and they have a very good chance of going the whole way in this tournament right looking good for germany what about the other games yesterday the hosts were on the field that's right france of course now believe it or not to france or actually i'm sorry there's no doubt it is according to the team coach. she said and also many experts have actually even said that france are a team to watch and they packed the stadium in nice 35000 fans were there to watch their game and the game against norway did go their way in fact they won 21 and the scoring was started by violent he goals but then the french quickly turned to shock to me because then he ran our managed to steer the ball into our own and a penalty was then awarded to france after a video review and. fired and so good result for them but it was also
2:25 pm
not smooth. they picked up what they needed to do and they're now topping at group tell us about another match in the same group nigeria taking on south korea what happened there that's right now nigeria defeated says korea to nail in kind of list so they recorded their 1st win of the campaign so a great result for them and it was a game that certainly had plenty of instance we've seen that quite a lot actually in this tournament so far played very exciting to watch this time it was. because we'll say a moment for kim dos young who will definitely not be forgetting this very clearly she attempted a clearance wrong footed her own goalkeeper and basically gifted nigeria the lead in the 29th minute now she really will not be hoping to see that too often and then i geria sad osho out of put the game to bed in the 2nd half to nil was the final score so good result for nigeria against as korea right what can we look for today
2:26 pm
big games today a straight need to win and they lost their opening game against italy that was a big shock and they're going to be taking on brazil and then in the other big game today south africa and china will be going head to head that both teams lost their opening games and they really really need to win so excited much just watch now right pablo foley is from database 4th in the women's world cup thank you people thanks who me. mine are not our top stories here and e.w. 2 oil tankers are reported to have been of been attacked in the gulf and a possible escalation of tensions between the u.s. and iraq reports say the crew have been evacuated and the u.s. navy has gone to assess. and as expected the former british foreign minister force johnson is through to the next round in the race to become the next conservative party leader and prime minister now he goes through its next wrong with that 6 others including michael go and jeremy hunt. coming up next conflicts down with him sebastian we're back with more news at the top of the hour
